The Books Have Shipped

The Air Lift has Lifted Off! Here's the "before" pic, as the skid is waiting for pick up:

The handsome guy sitting on this skid is my son Michael, who did a lot of the work packing boxes along with his brother. The boxes were then brought to my hubby's company, Protectolite Inc., manufacturer of Very Useful composite plastics, and all around A1 Canadian corporate citizen. So if you happen to need Third Rail insulators, armour plating for your army's people movers or baffles, weirs and covers for your water treatment plant, now you know who to call.

A big shout out to all the staff at Protectolite that wrapped the skid, labelled it, filled out the paperwork, and got the darn thing ready for pick up - Diana, Krista, Jim et al - you're the best!. And speaking of pick up, Protectolite also picked up the tab for customs and brokerage.

MWAH! to all of you!

The skid was picked up this afternoon by ERB Group. Thanks ERBites for all your help! And thanks also for your help in keeping our costs down to the bare bones minimum. You're also the best!

(Side note: ERB bills themselves on their website as the "Refrigerated Transportation Specialists," so it's nice to know our Canadian books will arrive in California cool as Canadian cucumbers!!!


And because he's just so darn cute, here's another picture of my son Michael with the skid. Wonder what (or who) he's looking at...
